I LOVE OILS! During the summer oils are my favorite, it makes my skin glow even more. Forget greasy messes these products will leave you with shinier hair and younger-looking skin. Oils used to be taboo. Now we slather coconut oil on everything! Beauty oils are a definite beauty do—even for women like me who’ve struggled with oily and shiny skin. Experts have discovered that certain oils have anti-aging and hydrating properties when applied topically to the body and hair. When shopping for beauty oils, remember not all products are compatible with your skin and hair type. Some oils might work better for people who run dry, while others are designed for oil-prone skin. Likewise, certain oils work better at night as opposed to daytime. I did my best to look at the reviews of products to help you make the best decision. Here are 10 of my favorite products that I’ve researched.
